If it is closed then I assume issues will not be fixed.
I call that abandoned.

For me I saw it in a distinguished position (tip of the next-to-last branch)
and yet it had known issues which were not fixed nor would, apparently, ever be

If I may raise my voice for a moment...

No. It (5.10.1) is NOT good.

It immediately failed one of my regression tests.
You should have known there was an issue because I here it has been fixed in 5.11

Fortunately I did not spend too much time blaming my code.
I submitted a bug report and was offered 3 patches which fixed the problem.

I think leaving that prominent, dangling version with known
issues is irresponsible.

Fix 5.10.1 (and make a 5.10.2) or take it away.

Back to calm voice...
